Cats. The Feline answer to The Arrse Kennel Club.
Love 'em or hate 'em, they've been living with and around humans since prehistoric times, at least 9,500 yrs, probably even back at least to the 8th century. They can function quite well as vermin killers, especially on farms and were even used for retrieving in hunting by the ancient Egyptians. There is a saying 'Dogs have masters...cats have servants.'
What are your thoughts on cats? Have you as a cat owner any advice for other cat owners, or potential owners? or stories, pics of your own cat etc to show?
This is not meant to be a cat V dog thread, it's mainly for interesting or funny anecdotes, advice and pics etc.
I never bothered one way or another about cats until we took a kitten from a friend in 1983, since that one, we've had 2 Maine Coons and 3 Bengals, 2 of which we still have, and I freely admit to being a real admirer of them now, especially the Bengals. All of them have been brought up alongside Staffies and have been treated by them as if they were other dogs, even though the dogs won't tolerate any other cats.I didn't say it was your fucking fault, I said I was blaming you.
I'm only responsible for what I say...not what you understand.

Mine is called "The enigmatic Colonel Walter E. Kurtz" to give him his full title,he answers to Kurtz if there is food in the bargain or Shithead in the early hours. I couldnt imagine life without him,he has been run over three times and attacked by a fox once. I rather suspect he is the Cat equivilent of Barnes in Platoon.
Im always reminded of the Far side cartoon which show a bloke holding a cat up in front of a mirror which isnt showing any reflection.The caption is "Just as I always suspected!"And what should they know of England who only England know?

Cats are the complete antithesis to dogs. Dogs being trustworthy, loyal, and have a strong sense of belonging. Cats on the other hand are deceitful, two-faced charlatans who couldn't give two shits about anyone else other than themselves. No wonder women like them.

My mum is like that mad old lady from the Simpsons who has millions of cats. On last inspection she had 6. One of them was my cat when I used to live there which means it must be about 20 years old now.
The missus also has a cat which is absolutely nails, a few months ago it had a fight with a police car and broke it's jaw, two days later it was squaring up to all the other cats in the neighbourhood, albeit with a bit of a limp and a slightly mongy jaw.
I think they are both girls, to be honest I haven't really looked, I respect their privacy. Problem is I can't touch them because I am horrendously allergic to them, it's like being CS gassed when I go near them and it brings me out in rashes and hot and cold sweats.

You might as well have named the thread 'I wear comfortable shoes and am good with colours' and been done with it.
